Check out this post on using metaphors to make your writing more vivid:

I’m a big fan of metaphors, and I like them better than similes. From the Greek, metaphora means to transfer or to carry over. It basically carries a comparison from one idea or item to another.

There is one difference between metaphors and similes: similes use the words like or as in them, metaphors do not.

Personally, I’m going to be more conscious of my usage of metaphors in my writing.  It’s a great technique.
